Focus On Righteousness
The LORD detests the way of the wicked but he loves those who pursue righteousness. – Proverbs 15:9
Before Christ died, we had to pursue righeousness because we did not have it. Now once we accept Christ, righteousness is given to us. We didn’t earn it, we can’t lose it. Why? Because it was given to us by the shed blood of Christ. His blood makes us righteous. When we focus on that righteouseness, that we are in right-standing with God, then we begin to do right. When we focus on being righteous through Christ, we do right with no effort on our own? Where our minds focus, our bodies will go.
